The exact center of a total lunar eclipse, or the maximum of a partial one, has to be the moment of Full Moon.
A Lunar eclipse occurs only when the moon is in its full moon phase.
Full moon is the only chance of an eclipse because that is when the moon is passing on the far side of the earth from the sun. At such times the moon may pass through earths shadow causing a lunar eclipse, either partial or full.
This is a lunar eclipse, not an eclipse of the Sun. In this case the answer is the Full Moon.
full moon phase
A full moon.
It must be Full Moon.
Only during a full moon.
During a lunar eclipse, the moon is "full". During a solar eclipse the moon is "new".
Only at the Full phase.
If you "think" about it - it has to be a full moon.
a full moon
All eclipses occur when there is a full moon. The type of eclipse will depend on how the Sun, Earth and Moon are lined up at that time. So it can be a total eclipse or a partial eclipse.
sun and moon are an opposite sides of the earth a phase of the moon is full moon
Lunar eclipses can ONLY happen at the full moon phase.
The new moon phase and the full moon phase
Full Moon.That's when the Moon is directly across from the sun, allowing the moon sun and earth to be in a straight line causing the eclipse (with the earth in the middle of course). Partial and penumbral lunar eclipses are when the Moon is ALMOST, but not quite, exactly lined up with the Sun and the Earth.Full moon Full moon
Solar eclipse . . . . . only at New Moon Lunar eclipse . . . . . only at Full Moon
A solar eclipse happens only at New Moon. A lunar eclipse happens only at Full Moon.
A solar eclipse can occur only at New Moon.A lunar eclipse can occur only at Full Moon.
